100 hundred ghost stories - Hyakumonogatari - is a traditional Asian game. During a moment of sharing between friends, dozens of candles are lit, each one tells a scary story and then blows out the flame. The legend goes that once the last candle is extinguished, a spirit appears. In choosing this title for her doubly inaugural exhibition – the opening of her first solo show and the new gallery space – Anastasia Bay declares why we are gathering at the outset. We will tell stories to each other. Without words. With colors and bodies entangled to form a great cosmogony of buried knowledge and ancient secular practices
